Good call! Now we need to identify the other guy.
These will be bare-bones in September, due to our vacation in Spain. Today, all the videos I can find from this week's Filthy Friends concert. "The Arrival" "Tears Are Falling" "Any Kind of Crowd" "Invitation" Continue reading

Dragons make up for a lot. I think the powers that be know this.

Rod Stewart is the guy where, if you looked up "what a sad waste of talent" in the dictionary, his picture would be there. I don't know why I hold it against him ... he started going downhill in his early-30s, which in my Theory of Rock Star Aging is about the norm. But it was such a big drop from Every Picture Tells a Story to Foot Loose and Fancy Free (and beyond). I saw him at the tail end of his tour for the latter album, and near the end of the show, he threw in a few repetitions of "every picture tells a story, don't it?" All I could think was, you said it, buster. I place Led Zeppelin at the peak, among very few others. I don't think of Santana being past his/their peak. Sure, the first few albums got our attention, and yeah, there have been albums that have been nondescript. But Carlos has always been Carlos, his guitar playing is always worth hearing ... he's like Eric Clapton, who will never make Layla again but who can still play. If I were the king of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I'd put Santana in there, for the music, and for the way they championed the Latino influence in rock and roll. But I don't think they have ever been Led Zeppelin. "Green Grass and High Tides" is dangerous, because whenever I listen to it on YouTube, I'm stuck for an hour playing different versions, many of which are 20+ minutes. As for the rest, Lynyrd Skynyrd and J Geils are the personal faves. Peter Frampton wasn't very good in 1977, but I also saw him in 1975 and he was great. Head East and Air Supply are embarrassments on my list of attended concerts, albeit I didn't go to see them in the first place, and not all opening acts are the same. Thanks for the comments, much appreciated as always!
